I am olive skinned with dark hairs. I had tried everything before (including spending $1200+ on laser!) and nothing else worked. For me vaniqa is a miracle.
If you live near an electrologist, you could enjoy the miracle of permanent hair removal and wouldn't need Vaniqa anymore. That's a steep price you are paying for a small tube and after already spending $1,200 for laser. It's funny how people gripe about electrolysis (the sure thing) being expensive when they don't hesitate to plop down over a thousand dollars for laser with no results and Vaniqa at $98 a tube that they will have to use for the rest of their life. Now, I'm am not scolding you at all because I am assuming that you don't have access to a skilled, modern electrologist as they are hard to come by on certain parts of the globe, but there are people that continue to chase the hair, who could spend less money for more, with electrolysis.
I would strongly urge you to spend effort to research if there are any good electrolgists in your locale. If there are not, then Vaniqa is a good choice for you because it is your only choice.
